  • Service Learning        
  • Diversity Projects       
  • Internships     
  • Study Abroad 
  • Collaborative Projects
  • Research Projects      
  • Learning Communities           
  • Publish a Writing Project        
  • Organize Community Events

You will find your voice, sharpen professional skills, make friends and job contacts, get to know your classmates and professors, and just do better in college.
